Section: The earliest recorded pop we have evidence for is a folk song from Spain. It was composed in 1673 and became famous for centuries after it was written.

Takeaway: Folk songs are old too

Section: The first pop song we have any historical proof of is “The Battle of the Trees” by Jean de La Fontaine in 1668. It’s sung in French and related to the First World War. That song is one of the oldest known songs, and its lyrics refer to battles between tribes or soldiers fighting against nature.

Takeaway: Other artists came before them

Section: We also have evidence that Shakespeare helped popularize love songs in his plays, which involved romantic relationships with royalty and just regular people.

Takeaway: Love stories were already old when Shakespeare wrote them!

Section: Another exciting thing about Shakespeare’s music is that he mentions an instrument called the tambourine, which doesn’t appear anywhere else though it may still be around today… (I am curious to know how this happened…)

The popular idea is that ancient musicians are credited with kicking off the first music, but it’s probably not true. It’s more likely that the first music was spontaneous, with simple melodies played on instruments made of stone or ivory. The earliest pieces of recorded sound come from China around 3500 BC and Egypt around 3000 BC: these are not technically “music” because they weren’t intended for an audience in any way—they were just noises made by people who enjoyed listening to them.

It wasn’t until about 1000 AD that people started looking at their history and trying to figure out why something had happened before now—and then they realized that there was no reason why anything had ever happened!

Current pop culture was born during the 18th century, and it started to become widespread by the end of the 19th century.

As you can see in the above picture, written texts did not have many musical features.

In 1660, the first known song was recorded by an Italian musician named Carlo Farina. He recorded a song called “La rosa de Pari,” which means “The Rose of Paris,” and is one of the first known songs recorded in history. The recording lasted only a week or two before it was wiped out by warring bands fighting over ownership rights to this new genre of music.

Unfortunately for us historians, there are no other recordings from that period until 1740, when someone created another melody using what we now know as “La rosa de Pari.” This version became an international sensation—and remains so today!

Pop culture had humble origins behind it.

In the beginning, pop culture was a spontaneous expression of art. Music was played on instruments made of stone or ivory, and these records lasted only a few days before being destroyed by bacterial action. The earliest form comes from 1660 and includes music performed by children in France’s royal court; some scholars believe this is the first recorded pop music ever.

[*] “Popular music” is a common term in many countries, but it’s not clear that it existed before the late 18th century. The earliest example of pop music was the fiddle tunes played by the Scottish troubadours and minstrels who entertained their listeners with stories, imitations of popular songs, or mere rhythmic entertainment.

[**] I’m not sure what’s the difference between “jam” and “jam session.” There are lots of jam sessions, so does it mean there is only one kind of jam session? Or does it simply refer to a particular type of event? A jam session usually refers to a bunch of professional musicians playing together. Whereas jam can also be used as an adjective: “The novel features many scenes set in a jam session.” A jam session could be held at someone’s home or somewhere else. However, in this case, there are probably no professional musicians involved.

[***] This post isn’t about getting into details about how people in different cultures pronounce these words (I’d like to note that English is just one language among many). Here I’m going to focus on the most common things people know about English words such as pop, rock, and hip hop, which they use to describe certain types of songs or musical styles.
